Project Description: Dress for Success is a signature program of EmBe - offering women a chance to get back on their feet, and back into the workforce! Women come to Dress for Success to learn valuable job skills and get help with interview skills, resume building, etc. Women also are fitted with an outfit to wear to put their best foot forward at the interview. If they get the job, they get to come back and be fitted for a week's worth of clothing to wear to work! The clothing for these women is donated by women in our community. Every year, clothing not used in our boutique is put on our semi-annual sale. All proceeds go to support the valuable programs at Dress for Success. Volunteers are needed to come and help sort and organize clothing for the sale, serve during the sale (ringing up sales, reorganizing clothes, bagging sales, etc) and then following the close of the sale, help to clean up and reset the space.
Tools & Materials Needed to Complete the Project: None
Special Requirements for the Project: Adults only. Men and women can help set up and clean up. Prefer women to help with customers during the sale.
